If you’re registered for Dreamforce 2019, you’ve – no doubt – received lots of emails about the amazing keynotes, 2700+ sessions, training bootcamps, the Expo, Campgrounds and Lodges, philanthropic events, and numerous parties… Whew! Yes, there really is that much crammed into 4 days and for first time attendees, it can be difficult knowing what to expect.
The official Dreamforce Get Ready page is full of good links to help you navigate your conference experience.
What can you expect at Dreamforce 2019? The team here at Revolution Group has attended Dreamforce several years in a row and we’ve curated a few of our own suggestions.
Comfortable Shoes – Seriously
You’ll be on the go all day – walking, standing, and maybe even dancing.
Yes, the keynotes and sessions are great. But the REAL value of Dreamforce is in the connections you’ll make with other Salesforce users and industry leaders. Take time to ask how others get value out of Salesforce, what they like best, and what interesting ideas they’ve heard or seen at the conference.
Ideas, Ideas, Ideas
Start a “Dreamforce Ideas” page in your favorite easy-access note taking app or notebook. That will help you remember all those valuable ideas even at the end of the week when your brain feels like it just can’t hold any more information.
The Keynote sessions are all about “the art of what’s possible.” Use them to inspire and visualize what might be done to transform your own organization. Go to the Dreamforce Sessions page and filter by category “Keynote” or “Featured Keynote” to see the many keynotes offered this year. Bookmark them. Here are two that I’m especially looking forward to: Future of Work: How AI Will Affect Our Workforce in the 5IR and Digital Experience Keynote: Maximize Your Return on Experience.
Some sessions fill up quickly. Spend some time on the Dreamforce Sessions page now that the Agenda Builder is open and sign up for your favorite sessions!
Yes, I’m a big fan! And I’m definitely looking forward to this benefit concert.
San Francisco Sights
San Francisco is a fabulous city. Whether you have just a few minutes or an extra day or two, try to enjoy some of the culture of the City by the Bay. If you only have a few minutes you can take a cable car ride, walk up Lombard Street, or stroll past the Salesforce Tower. If you have more time, check out some of the more popular attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, or Alcatraz.
Dreamforce Survival Kit
We’ve also put together a Dreamforce Survival Kit of small, but essential items you’ll be thankful to have during the conference. Complete this form and we’ll send you our kit to help keep you healthy and happy during the conference.
